    If you look on the video card there will be a sticker with the model number on it. you cansearch for it on google to then find out who manufactures the video card. then you can go to there website to download the most current driver for the video card. also you can right click your desktop go to properties the on the settings tab click the advanced button. the under the adapter tab it should inform you of the video card you have in the pc. then you can go to their website to get the most current driver.

    that's not unusual. you'll need to enquire from the people you purchased this item through, as to what is the video card installed with computer.

How do i update my pixel shader for my computer to play games ?


Hi Gerry, if your HP's video card is capable of running the game, you can update the video driver. I would suggest trying the HP Driver Download Support website first. Here's the link: Drivers Downloads.

If your video card is not capable of running the game, you will want to look into a different video card.

Hope that helps you out! :)

Stand alone


Same monitor or different monitor? If same monitor, is the screen resolution the same on both computers? Have you tried installing the latest drivers available for the video card? Does the PC with the better video card also have a better or equal CPU and RAM? A lot of people and even techs overlook the PSU which often causes so many stability or performance issues that it is not even funny.
Other than those, the slow machine might have some software issues like a malware infection, registry or filesystem corruption or you simply need to update the game or do a uninstall/re-install.

do you know what an onboard video card is? it is a basic video card that is primarily installed onto the motherboard for basic PC work, not for heavy video files or gaming. seems to me you have a low end graphics card that cannot handle the job.you have to find out whether or not you can upgrade your pc to a fullon mind blowing video card before you even think about getting another. but unfortunately you do. plus you also need to check your net connection speed as this can play a major part also when downloading and playing large files.

Cant play game


This game is suffering from technical bugs lots of them. You must look for the patches.
the real prob looks to be inside the game engine and only developer may be fully aware of it.
